Well, All those wanting parts for their 2012 like turn signal mirrors will soon be able to aquire them..
I bet hundreds of 2012s will be totalled by flood damage from hurricane Sandy out East.

I didn't even think about that! That's pretty cool / horrible.

I was looking at salvage cars about a month ago when I was considering re-writing MFT... I just don't have the space to put a totaled car anywhere.

Sandy wrecked shop, damn. I feel for those having to deal with the mess left behind. The link to the weather photos are humbling to say the least.
